Manufacturer:
AD Surgical

PTFE Suture 3-0 with a 19 mm, 3/8 circle reverse cutting needle combines the most popular needle in dentistry with our most popular suture size. Cytoplast Comparison: CS051819. Non-resorbable PTFE sutures, with reverse cutting needles, are the ideal sutures for many dental implant surgical procedures, where the usage of a monofilament suture with low bacterial adhesion is recommended.

  • Sold in Package of 12 sutures.

SKU: M-F318R19

Regular Price: $75.00

PTFE Sutures Main Features and Benefits

  • Ultra sharp needle point for atraumatic tissue penetration. Needle is coated with silicone for smooth tissue passage.
  • Nonresorbable: Keeps the surgical site reliably closed
  • Monofilament Construction: Eliminates bacterial wicking. Thread is Undyed, Uncoated.
  • Excellent Soft Tissue Response: PTFE suture's unique softness and smoothness enables it to go through soft tissues minimizing micro- damage reaction around tissue duct, which prevents from bacterial colonization in deeper layers of the wound.
  • Biologically inert and chemically non-reactive: 100% Medical Grade PTFE
  • Promotes Wound Healing: In contrast to braided sutures, especially those made from absorbable materials, PTFE does not absorb blood, saliva, bacteria and food residues. This promotes wound healing.
  • Not subject to weakening by tissue enzymes: Despite its soft and delicate nature, PTFE firmly supports tissues during the whole healing process, in contrast to absorbable materials which maintain tissues only in the early stages of healing due to the presence of enzymes in the mouth.
  • Little or no package memory: soft handling and knots securely. The thread does not retain the coiled shape after unpacking, which makes it easier to work with.
  • Great fluency among tissues
  • Comfortable and soft for the patient: not stiff like most monofilaments. The surgical knot made with a PTFE suture is durable and does not loosen. The ends of the suture do not cause irritation of the cheek, lips and tongue, unlike suture materials based on various monofilament fibres, which additionally may contribute to the formation of viral changes on mucous membrane.
  • Ultra High tensile strength: does not weaken when moistened. Provides permanent support.

PTFE Suture Applications

PTFE sutures thanks to being completely non-absorbable and biologically inert, cause minimal inflammatory response in the moist environment of the oral cavity, that’s why they are an excellent choice for any:

  • Bone grafting procedures 
  • Soft tissue grafting 
  • Guided tissue regeneration 
  • Implant surgery 
  • Periodontal surgery 
  • Ridge aumentation 

About PTFE Sutures

The PTFE Suture, is monofilament, synthetic, non-absorbable surgical suture composed of 100% polytetrafluoroethylene without any additives. The suture undyed and uncoated.

PTFE is a unique biomaterial in that it is inert and chemically non-reactive. In addition, the monofilament construction prevents bacterial wicking which is associated with braided sutures. Therefore, PTFE sutures are ideal for any implant, periodontal and bone graft surgery where the usage of a monofilament suture with low bacterial adhesion is recommended.
